What our experts think
Wacky Hair Dough is great for encouraging imaginative role play, the superfood of the balanced play diet! One of our testers loved impersonating a hairdresser – “Can I get you a drink? How do you want your hair today? Long on the top, short on the sides?”. Acting out real-life scenarios helps children to make sense of them and develops their understanding of the world.
Our testers enjoyed cutting the hair and getting creative, making bows and bits to put in it. They used the included colour chart and enjoyed combining the set and characters with their other playdough sets and utensils. Playing with dough is great for strengthening muscles in fingers and hands and developing dexterity as children interact with it. Our testers did find that warming the dough up in their hands made it easier for it to go through the holes, making the whole process a bit quicker.
